New Stamps By Cynthia...

My sister, Cynthia, just finished carving some stamps for me! Aren't they amazing? I'm going to press out some coin pendants in bronze and copper to be sold exclusively in my Shop. I've got lots of lovely things that will debut shortly in the Shop!

Wow, those stamps are really cool. What are they carved out of?

Andrew Thornton said...

These aren't actually the stamps themselves. They're polymer clay prototypes that have been pressed in to show the design as it'll appear on the coins.

The actual stamps are carved out of polymer clay. Cynthia goes into details on the process of making the stamps in her book, Enchanted Adornments.

Wow! Really gorgeous! I like the owl and the sugar skull a lot. But the spiral is my favorite! And the magpie is sweet :) should I feel identified? Lol.
Can't wait to see them in your shop. Cynthias work is so extremely detailed.

Oh and before I forget. Received my last purchase. Thanks a lot, the beads are so much better in person. And so many extras!

Ooh, they're all lovely. I especially like the crow and the snake, though. Looking forward to seeing them in your shop :)
